What a meal. Keep an open mind about how the place looks and you'll be in for a fantastic night. Table of 9 with food to feed 15 and I'm not joking. Sylvia was great and we will be coming back. Well done.

The food was GREAT!!!... the ambiance above average!!!  I had great service and a great German meal.... everything is home made and it was certainly delicious.... this rivals some great restaurants in Milwaukee for German food and they serve ALL European dishes..... this is a must visit if you are in the area!!!! It actually was that good!!!!!!!!

Had never been to Silva's before. Kind of slow start. We were brought bread and soup before our drinks, but they were both very tasty...as were the drinks! Silvia came to our table and consulted with us about the food and answered any questions we had. She made some recommendations which we took her up on. A salad for our table came next to share (delicious) with homemade dressing. When dinner arrived we were not disappointed. Dessert was also provided all with the meal. We took enough home to share for another time. We will return as the food was great! - Lisa C Tolland CT

“Absolutely awesome!” November 2016
My first try at veal schnitael. Absolutely loved it.  Transylvanian goulash was a bit spicy for me but was good and pasta in it perfectly cooked.  She made me a half and half when I could not decide!  Soup was delicious.  Salad was perfectly fresh.  Everything was perfect.  Will be back again and again.  Go here.  You will not be sorry.Visit TripAdvisor Review

“Can't possibly say enough good things about Silvia's!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2015
Believe all the wonderful reviews you read here! Silvia's Restaurant is a treasure! It is quite unique, and for those of us with middle European heritage, it is like going back to Grandma's or Great Grandma's house. The food is wonderful --- the best of Polish, Hungarian, Romanian, Russian, etc. cooking! It is a tremendous value, since you get bread, soup, salad, entree, and dessert (and leftovers). The atmosphere inside goes along with the food -- the music and decor all speak to Silvia's roots. We were greeted by Galina, who made us feel at home immediately. She was very considerate of our 95-year-old mother, asking if she was warm enough and being careful to fulfill all of her requests, such as making sure the vegetables were cooked enough for her to chew. When we were here on other occasions, Silvia waited on us herself, and she is an amazing lady. Today she was in the kitchen, cooking. The restaurant was surprisingly empty. as has been noted by other reviewers; however, Galina told us that they were preparing for a catered party that started at 10 PM. As soon as we were seated, Galina brought us home-baked bread and a delicious pot of soup to share. We ordered the Romanian wine that Silvia imports, which we found we all liked very much (full-bodied and on the sweet side - went well with the food). Next came a delicious salad with Silvia's secret dressing. The lamb stroganoff was superb, as was the Polish dinner (an assortment of Pierogi, kielbasa, galumpki, sauerkraut, and mashed potatoes). Our mother enjoyed the wiener schnitzel very much, and our friends loved their entrees as well. Dessert was a melt-in-your mouth dark chocolate brownie. Silvia's is a place we will return to again and again. You won't find others like it. Don't miss out!!!

“GO IN!!!!! You can hear them making the food from scratch ” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2015
EVERYTHING IS HOME MADE THE CHEF AT THIS RESTAURANT IS A CUTE OLDER WOMAN WHO KNOWS HOW TO COOK!!! Obviously passed down through her ancestors because this sweet lady CAN COOK!! She won chef of 2015- She comes to your table and takes your order and PERSONALLY MAKES IT HERSELF ! She should introduce herself with more pride because it wasn't until halfway through my dinner that I realized the chef herself was taking my order and then making it!! If you are looking for an interesting menu and delicious homemade food with a very large selection- you have to try it...!! My boyfriend and I stopped in here around 7 PM on a Friday night .. We were the only people in there-- and at the end of our meal we were SHOCKED there weren't more people dining there. The food was delicious I had the lamb stroganoff .. Boyfriend had Chen cordon bleu-It was SOOO good. Large portions on dinner . We left stuffed. She gave us homemade brownies to take home too:) some entrees come as 5 course and great quality for a very decent affordable price . If I lived by her I would cut down the big tree blocking her restaurant and put up lights outside of her business to get people's attention!!!! ---I think it is hard to see from the road- !! All in all GREAT dinner experience - we took very good care of them. Must go!
